United sit in fifth place with 65 points despite an club-record unbeaten streak of 25 league matches. For the first time in 40 years, both Manchester United and Arsenal are outside the top-four when they play each other. "We're confident of that".

Why beating Marc-Andre Fleury is the key to the series

But the fifth game of the series was the first time the Washington offense really poked holes in Fleury, the first time they really managed to rattle his cage with successive scores.
